My daughter is 11 months old. Our pediatrician told us to wean from the bottle/formula at 12 months. I am concerned, however, because she still gets the majority of her nutrition from her formula. She will eat table foods fairly well, but she still takes 25-30 oz a day. She has eight teeth, and will eat any vegetables that I cook and she will eat numerous fruits. She will not eat anything pureed. She wants to feed herself. We offer only water or formula in a sippy cup. My main concern is weaning from the formula. I know what our doctor told us to do, (gradually reduce the formula as we introduce whole milk) but I am worried about her not getting her nutrients. She just doesn't eat enough solids to keep her full. I have not yet started her on whole milk, as our doctor said not to until she was 12 months. Any suggestions? How were you planning to wean?
